Tempt My Tummy… Chai Tea Mix and Chocolate Peppermints

by Lisa on December 17, 2012

We are about one week ’til Christmas.  That means my kitchen is full of all things necessary for baking and making Christmas cookies and candies.  This year I also added something new…. Homemade Chai Tea mix.  I found this recipe via Pinterest.  I pinned it to my Christmas Ideas board knowing I wanted to try it.  There are MANY recipes posted on  Pinterest for Chai Tea.  However, this recipe was SO easy to make, I recommend this one!  My house smells wonderful after making a batch this afternoon.  Check out the ingredients and you will see why the kitchen smells so nice.

Making Chai Tea Mix

Homemade  Chai Tea Mix

  • 1 cup dry powdered milk
  • 1 cup non-dairy powdered coffee creamer
  • 1 cup French Vanilla flavored non-dairy powdered coffee creamer
  • 2 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened instant tea
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp clover
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  1. First wash and dry your air tight storage container.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix using a wire whisk.
  3. Next, add  small portion at a time to a blender or food processor.  Blend until it becomes a fine powder.
  4. Divide and store in air-tight containers.  One batch made enough for these three containers.

Directions for making your mug of tea: ” Mix 3 tsp of the Chai Tea Mix into a mug of hot water.”

Gifting Chai Tea Mix for Christmas

It was a busy afternoon in my kitchen.  Once the tea was done, I moved onto Chocolate Peppermints.  This was yet another recipe I found on Pinterest!   These peppermints are like eating a York Peppermint Patty!  What could be better?  The wonderful blogger who first posted this gave such a great step by step tutorial, I am just going to point you to her blog (www.shewearsmanyhats.com.) Her pictures and directions and great.  This is another super easy recipe!!! I am very excited to share these chocolate peppermints with my MOPS friends at our cookie exchange tomorrow.  Below is a picture of my chocolate peppermints.  They turned out great!

The cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and clover ingredients make all this sound so yummy and gorgeous. You painted a wonderful image when you said your ‘house smells wonderful after making a batch.’

Hi Lisa, I’m joining Tempt My Tummy for the first time today after coming here a couple times daydreaming about all the food I see. I have your link and button on my sidebar. Thanks for hosting, and I hope to join regularly in the coming weeks.

Thank you greatly for hosting each week. I hope you’re enjoying the holiday season!

Today I shared two recipes: a hearty minestrone soup for those cold winter nights, plus a strawberry apple butter that will make you wish for spring!
